Several Pasco County Sheriff's Office detectives will be featured in the nationally syndicated television show "Snapped: Killer Couples" at 10 p.m. Sunday.

The true crime television series features housewife turned adult film star Amanda Logue and her boyfriend, fellow actor Jason Andrews. The two pleaded guilty to the murder of tattoo parlor owner Dennis "Scooter" Abrahamsen.

Detectives William Lindsey, James Gariepy, Daniel Toner and Sgt. James Sessa, their supervisor, are expected to appear.

Logue, known in porn films as "Sunny Dae," pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the killing of Abrahamsen during a sex party in May 2010. She received a reduced sentence of 40 years.

Andrews pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Abrahamsen was found stabbed and bludgeoned to death on a massage table in his New Port Richey home in May 2010. Logue had been paid as a prostitute to attend a party at Abrahamsen's home the night before he was killed.

Authorities say Logue and Andrews exchanged text messages before and during the party, discussing the attack.

The series features dramatic re-creations and firsthand accounts of crimes committed by couples. Each episode examines the stories behind the couples' romance, their relationship and what drove them to commit the crime.

The show is part of an expansion of the series "Snapped." The show is produced by Oxygen Media and expands its true crime original programming.

"Snapped: Killer Couples" is produced by Jupiter Entertainment. The executive producers are Stephen Land and Deborah Dawkins.
